Community Supported Art

A Share of Support for The Arts

Imagine if you could attend a farmers’ market, but instead of farm-fresh produce and fresh-baked goods, you take home local art, eat amazing food, and enjoy great performances — and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with meeting new friends.

The Arts Partnership’s Community Supported Art (CSA) invites participants to purchase shares of art that include visual, performing and culinary offerings at three fabulous parties. Participants purchase shares in exchange for visual, performing and culinary offerings at three unique parties hosted by TAP throughout the season.  

A Win-Win Program That Benefits Art Creators and Supporters

With each share purchased, TAP reinvests the money toward directly supporting local artists and organizations. CSA participating artists also benefit because they get their works in front  — and in the homes — of shareholders.

What to Expect 

CSA shareholders get all-access passes to three seasonal parties that include:

  • A plus-one ticket to each party
  • Live, local music and performances
  • Food, cocktails and mocktails catered by the best regional chefs 
  • Three custom pieces of art created specifically for each CSA event by local artists

Shares Sell Out Fast

To keep the CSA experience fresh, intimate and singular, we limit shares to 50 per year. Shares tend to sell out very fast, so our best advice is to keep yourself in the know about The Arts Partnership happenings throughout the year. You can do that by joining our community on social media and email.

CSA shares are sold out for 2022.

CSA Frequently Asked Questions

Anyone can buy a CSA share.

You’ll get access to three parties for you and a guest.  Each event includes: 

  • a performance from a local musician, poet, actor, performing arts group etc.
  • a piece of visual art to take home
  • culinary art from a local chef
  • wine sampling from Bernie’s Wine and Liquors
  • non-alcoholic beverages
  • artist talks
  • access to a community of other art lovers

We work hard each season to ensure that shareholders get an interesting range of take-home art and performances – and that each season feels unique from prior seasons. For example, we’ve had jazz singers and spoken word performances, an Americana group and a flute and cello duet. Take home art includes anything from watercolor paintings, ceramic pieces, architectural drawings and turned wood pieces.

Absolutely. CSA shares make a unique gift for the art lovers in your life.

A full share is $500. Cost is $300 for a partial share that includes everything but the take-home art.

A partial CSA share allows you to enjoy the three events each year that includes food, drink and performances, but excludes the take-home art.
